wheel rusted to shaft

Recommended Posts

Any one have a sure fire method to remove a wheel from the tranny shaft? I have the gear puller attached, used heat and PB Blaster liberally, without a millimeter of movement. Thx!!

There is usually a hole in the center of the wheel where you can assemble a "puller". Get a flat piece of steel, drill 3 holes as follows: In the center hole, use a long bolt to put pressure on the shaft. Use two more bolts thru the holes in the wheel where weights are normall mounted. By turning the center bolt (or the two outer bolts) it will work just like a regular puller to get the wheel off the shaft. Tom

I had one so bad no amount of heat or puller would remove. I only needed the rims as the transaxle was shot & was replacing it. After the attempts it was obvious I'd ruin the rim and another would be hard to find.....I cut the axle with torch, then put the rim & axle stub in a press & pushed it out.

Loosen wheel bolts slightly. Drive around on rough ground making left and right turns till it busts loose. If it's a Broadmoor type wheel the heat needs to be applied on the inside or transaxle side of the wheel. Trying to heat it from the outside won't do anything. You need to expand all of the areas contacting the axle. There is no rust or corrosion which can resist heated expanded metal.

id would try the drive trick and using a hammer and pb blaster just work it over time, take time don't rush and soon enough it will work its way off. if you have a puller on try hitting the center bolt of the puller that will do the trick sometimes. matt

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
